See now that's impressive. You opened for him? Pray tell - a new story for the forum.

not much to tell. it was either '78 or'79. the opener cancelled at the last minute and our sound guy also worked with the Keystone and Ultrasound. he recommended us. we got a call about an hour before the show (which i was going to anyway) and three out of five of the band members lived in Berkeley so we did an acoustic set. jerry and his band were heading out to the stage as we were headed back to the green room so we just exchanged hellos, he thanked us and went on stage. now the time jerry cursed at me for taping is a better story. it's on the denver coliseum show reviews.

Since I was the one who started the original thread I'll add to the smallest.Fillmore East,Orpheum Theater,Fox Warfield Theater.Not sure on whose seating is what but personally nothing beats a theater.Reseved seats,no weather,no monstous crowds.About seeing Jerry I was fortunate to see them at all the Keystones and I distinctly remember the opener for a Berkeley show was a comedy couple called Rick and Ruby a husband and wife team,pretty funny as I recall.Their big finish was playing a guitar w/ a flamingo head calling it flamenco music.I guess you had to be there.Oh yea,the Cotati Theater also for Jerry.
